I’d love to read a “Part Zero” about idea/guess generation.

“Code is cheap” — I love it (and wish I came up with it :|)!

I figured that most of the developers who would be reading this would have some idea they were (irrationally) obsessing over, making anyone they talked to sign NDAs and swear blood oaths (even though they’ve made zero progress on implementing their idea).

That, or they were actively sinking themselves in a quagmire of code without having validated there was even a potential market for whatever business they thought they were getting themselves into.

That being said, I agree that there should be a Part Zero to discuss how to find worthwhile ideas, and that will definitely be covered in The Epic Guide: The Book which I’ll be posting about shortly in the coming week :)
